Will these candidates win big with Trump behind them?
On Wednesday (April 6), former President Donald Trump handed out half a dozen endorsements to Republican lawmakers who are up for reelection in November’s midterms.
Republican Representatives Carol Miller of West Virginia, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Mike Johnson of Louisiana, Kat Cammack of Florida, Brian Mast of Florida, and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, all received Trump’s “Complete and Total Endorsement.”
Trump revealed his endorsement of the incumbent Republicans through statements released by his Save America PAC.
Among the seven names, two stand out for being Trump’s most outspoken supporters: Jordan and Greene.
The pair have held onto the notion that the 2020 Presidential election was rigged, despite evidence to the contrary.
Now, Trump is repaying that loyalty by giving his coveted stamp of approval to their reelection bids.
In his statement announcing his endorsement of Greene, the former President wrote, “She doesn’t back down, she doesn’t give up, and she has ALWAYS been with ‘Trump,'” he also called Georgia’s first-term Rep. a “warrior in Congress.”
Trump went on to note that Greene “loves our Country and MAGA, its greatest ever political movement.”
In response, Green said she was “honored and grateful to have such a strong endorsement from my favorite President and the greatest President of my lifetime.”
Jordan also received a glowing endorsement from the former President, with Trump stating that the lawmaker “is a truly outstanding man, and a fighter like no other.”
Trump also noted how Jordan had been an ally during his Presidency, saying the Ohio lawmaker “debunked the Russia, Russia, Russia scam, the Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine made-up call, Impeachment Hoax #1, Impeachment Hoax #2, and the Mueller Report.”
Concluding his statement of endorsement of Jordan, Trump noted that the Congressman is “a fierce advocate of our Make America Great Again agenda,” adding that he was “proud to award him our Country’s highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom.”
